LATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. THE BALTIC. Operations vs this Baltic. — A letter, dated off Nargcn Island, May 15th, 'states: — ' Admiral Dundas, with his fleet, arrived at this well-known (through last year's experience) anchorage, after ten days' sail. The morning after anchorage an armed party, under command of ^Lieutenant A. C. Hobart, the senior of the Duke of Wellington, were sent on shore t6 reconnoitre the islands and take possession of the lighthouse, which is placed in a very prominent and important position. It was found that the Russians, who had been m possession during the absence of the Allies, had decamped pre vious to our arrival; and our old friends, the vendors of milk and eggs at most exorbitant prices, (which, by-the-way, the French take good care not to pay), received our party with open arms, baskets of eggs, and buckets of milk, and did not appear the least alarmed by the Minie rifies and fixed bayonets of our marines.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 31 October 1855

f£^~As a general ruk, we wish it to be understood tltat we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions of bur correspondents. To tbb EditWof ' Tbe Inquihek and CoiLJunciAi Sews.' SIR, — Perhaps yoi^ will allow me a small space in one of your coluniis to bring before the public the bad and unfair system adopted with reference to the supply of clothiBg to' the Poiice. Sometime since the Government iequired a number of hats for the use of the Policy these were furnished by a tradesman at his owi/ price, no tender having been called for. In the next place a tailor is applied to for the covering ofitesaid hats; he does so at his own figure. Now, I an of opinion that this is un fair to two classes; firs-, to the tradesman, since it allows no room for competition, and, secondly, to the men belonging to th Police Force. As the men have to pay for their - wn clothes, it is but just to give them the opiortunity of getting them as cheaply and as v II made as possible. Nor do I c...

S)t4 Jjfturrtusait Our d ates extend to the 25th instant. We regret to hear of the loss of cattle by poison at the Gerald ine Mines, uiu-; having lately died from this cause. The works at (he Mines are progressing favour ably, the contractors having nearly completed a new smithy and carpenter's shop, and also a horse whim. The smelting xrofcs are undergoing repairs and al terations, and a iew chimney has been erected of a substantial desctjiption. The chimney took 300 cubic yards of stotie. The Mine is at present full of water, but the contractors arc in a position to fork it out quickly whep they are ready to re-commence operations. A' crushing machine is in course of manufacture, and' :t is expected that the stamps will be in motion in -jae course of a fortnight from the date of our correspondent's letter. Hitherto all the ore has been crufc'ied by hand. A powder ma gazine has been lively built, and the blasting pow der snugly stowed jiway. The want of such a build ing has been mu...

I' ? #asse. The whaling ttarty at Castle Bock have secured 27 tuns tuns of oil, and, as whales are still plentiful, it is not improbable but that more will be obtained before the close of the season. Latterly, however, they have been somewhat unfortunate, being com pelled to ' cut' from one or two humpbacks — one sunk after it was killed, and was irrecoverable. The season will end e^rly in November.
